Ray scores against the next famous expiring contract

Celts won this one, even though they trailed at halftime by 1 despite shooting almost 70%:
  • Just like Pietrus and Lewis picked up shooting where they left off in Game 7, so did new Raptor Hedo Turkoglu tonight.  I wonder if those 3 guys (along with Jason Richardson for that matter) would be perennial all-stars if they played for Boston.  For the game he was 8-11 for 20 points.
  • Refs botched up 2 obvious calls- the KG reverse layup should've been a continuation.  Of course then Ray Allen didn't get fouled on the next shot he made but they called that to make-it-up.  Secondly, Rondo's 3/4 court shot was ruled a turnover even though he threw it up because Bosh wrapped him up.  How do all the refs miss that?
    • I'm telling you I think there should be a 4th ref that watches the game on TV and communicates to the 3 refs on the floor when it's a missed call so blatant.
  • Bargnani doesn't seem to have a pulse.  I thought that contract Toronto gave him was ridiculous.  Mark my words he'll be an "expiring contract" ready to be shipped in 5 or 6 years, whenever it's up.
  • My NBA League Pass blacked out for the first 20 seconds of the 4th quarter.  Was there some spectacular Paul Pierce dunk and subsequent technical foul?  And then a tech on Doc?  My feed came back up and Calderon was at the foul line for two technical shots.

  • Jarret Jack annoys me.  I detest little players who constantly jump into the bigger defender to draw contact and then get the benefit of the call.  Chris Paul does this a lot.  Jack does it every time he can.
  • Boston shot 62% as a team for the game including 68 points in the paint.  KG and Perkins were 6 for 6 and 8 for 8 from the field respectively.
  • Quote of the night in this one from Mike Gorman: Jay Triano (Raptors Coach) looks like he should be teaching Economics somewhere LOL.  Totally true, he just doesn't look like a basketball coach.
  • Celts played well as a team in this one, and Gorman even mentioned at one point they were getting their swagger back and playing defense like "2 seasons ago."  I can admit that 3rd quarter they looked excellent.
  • What would really be getting their swagger back is sweeping these next 4 games this week in Miami, Charlotte, San Antonio and Oklahoma City.  I could deal with winning 3, but all 4 would be really sweet.

    Yeah, what was Toronto thinking with that contract? i mean he's not a bad player, but that's a lot of dough. For that kind of money you should be getting more.

    Not sure why Pierce got a tech on his dunk. He didn't seem to taunt much more than Wade did on Varejao.

    As lackluster as the C's have looked at times their still on course for over 60 wins.

    Bargnani is a corpse out there. Who's the crappiest Italian, him, Bellinelli or Gallinari?
